Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 12-31-69 Who knew a Tea Party could be such Fun!!

I can not say about 81 or 89 but I'm listening to '69 now (for the first time I believe) and it is fantastic with lots of good funny banter to boot !!!!

I urge you all to start with this:

Here is a fun review of 12-31-69

Reviewer: mr chuck - [4.0 out of 5 stars] - January 6, 2007
Subject: One crazy night to welcome the "70s
Howdy - Yes, I was there when this was played that very night. Good dear friend Marshall Goldberg was the sound engineer/designer for the Ark and the Tea Pary (when it was absorbed later on at the Landsdowne Street venue). The Ark was designed and built by Intermedia Systems Corporation, which, in 1969, did the logistics for Woodstock. I worked for them during this phase. Hi to Gerd Stern and Stuart Vidockler and George Litvin! Google those names for a ride through the acid-drenched '60s.
Livingston Taylor was on this bill, as was an improve group, Cambridge Light and Power, which oddly enough, was the previous tenant in what became Intermedia's new home base in 1969 - 711 Mass. Ave. Intermedia bought the only recording studio in Boston at that time - Petrucci and Atwell - and they are the name on some of the Timothy Leary recordings.
This NYE concert's posteris documented in The Art of Rock, a coffee table book of poster art. I've nearly gotten into fisticuffs with deadheads that cannot fathom that the Dead could have possibly played anywheres but the Bay area on that auspicious day. And now I have this to further support that reality and truth. Woo Hooo!
Great show. Went 'til sun-up. Everyone was dosed. EVERYONE. This includes Don Law, the manager of the Ark, who tried in vane to NOT get conditioned (someone got to his corked/sealed bottle of Mateus). The memory of him being escorted off of the stage as he asked the balloon-screeching audience "Have you all lost your minds?" Good entertainment there!
Some time later in SF, I became close with Zohn Artman, who became all that ran Bill Graham - after being taken in when he was a waiter to BG's entourage at Elton John's first nights at the Troubador in LA. stories....

One of the first (the?) GROKS way back when, me thinks...or did we do the 30th instead? Can't recall. Good shows.

The 12/31/69 show is very enjoyable, so laid-back - the Alligator jam is my favorite part, but the rest is fun as well.
But my favorite New Year's show has to be:

The Truckin'>Other One>Morning Dew with David Crosby covers more than an hour and is fantastic, one of the peak '72 jams.

Nice to see that we all agree that the best 3 new years shows were 69,81,and,89. At least that's how I see it. Happy New years already from this side of the world. Sad to think I'll already be hungover before you guys start watching the times square apple fall but anyway may this year be good to you all.
Cheers

Not only the great Miller, we also have a new Matrix of the same show (in month/day only) for those so inclined which just appeared last night:

(BIG EDIT: Missed the year by about 8. My bad. Still sounds grate though)

Now, I apologize in advance on this, but Joan Baez makes my lower intestine crawl up my spinal column to throttle my brain in an attempt to stop the pain.
